This unpretentious bistro blew a breath of French air through the Vancouver dining scene when it opened in 2007. Its warm, bustling atmosphere, decent-sized patio and - more importantly - a three-course prix fixe of salad, steak/salmon frites and chocolate pud immediately drew crowds, and they've been lining up ever since. Stick to the set meal and you'll feel like you've eaten well for a bargain price. The à la carte can seem a little steep for uninspired renditions of classics. Service is authentically brusque. Reservations recommended.
